Hey everyone! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. We've had a busy summer with our new little one, and with Rayne now settled back in school things are calming down a bit. It's exciting reading the posts of all the new babies that have arrived and are on the way.

Can someone post the address/times for the playgroup - is it still at the church? I've got an acquaintance who has just adopted a 2 year old in the area and he and his girlfriend are having a hard time finding some social activities for them all. Mom would love to make some play dates, but isn't having much luck finding other mom groups in the area. I'd like to pass along the playgroup info in hopes that she can connect with someone there, particularly before the winter hits. I know how much harder it is to get out then! :

Thanks so much!!

Mama to DD#1 (03/05) and DD#2 (05/08). Expecting baby #3.

Hey Tamara, nice to hear from you!

Fort Massey United Church, on the corner of Queen and Tobin Streets, third door along Tobin Street, ring the bell (ring again if there's no answer the first time) Mondays from 11-1.

PM me if your friend would like my phone/e-mail.

Has anyone located organic bed sheets in town? Or know of a Cdn company with reasonable prices? We bought C a wool mattress from Shepherd's Dream and I'd like some better sheets to go on it.

Thanks!

Haven't looked in ages. You could always try selling locally on kijiji. Might be less hassle.

Wow! You are almost there! I hope little one has a ton of wool knit up for him/her! Did you ever get to use your Elbee number?

I was going to, I got the forms and everything, but I just can't justify the cost! I'm thinking I might just order 3 or something, as a splurge, but to order the whole dozen, I just couldn't do it.

And yes, I've got a couple of pairs of longies, and 4 or 5 soakers knit up. If only I could remember where I'd put them!

Alison I just saw your new siggy!! Congratulations!!!! ::
I thought you were having a boy. How did that happen

Enjoy this wonderful time!



I can't believe it is Christmas parade time again, but here it is! We have always gone to the Halifax parade. Has anyone gone to the Bedford parade of lights? Is it as good as Halifax? We are just thinking a change might be nice. Where would a good spot to see the parade in Bedford be? And I have no idea about parking

Krista, we didn't know what we were having, but The Boy insisted it was his brother Trevor. He was wrong! She's 4 weeks old now. And hungry!

Hello ladies,
I'm a new member currently living in Calgary but soon moving to Halifax. I'm sure I'll be looking to attend some playgroups once there but just thought I'd start hanging out here for some familiarity with names etc. I have an almost 3 yr old son and another one to come in April.

Hello, pleased to meet you! When are you moving here? I'm afraid this thread is a little quiet at the moment since most of the people who go to playgroup don't check the thread, but if there's anything you want to know, just ask, I'll do what I can to get some answers.

Thanks! We're moving sometime in February and I'm due in April..eek. It's nice to know that the playgroup is thriving even though this thread isn't. Anyway, thanks for responding and I hope to meet some of you in person soon. :

Just updating the calendar on hrmparent.ca and wanted to check that the playgroup is still continuing? I need to get down there myself at some point!

Cheers!

That's spooky! Cassie and I were just talking about making sure you guys still had us listed! Yes, the details are still the same.

Hey everyone. Sheree Fitch will be at Tattletales this Sunday, the 25th, to launch the 20th anniversary edition of Sleeping Dragons. Just thought I'd pass it on in case there are any fans out there (we love Mable Murple in this house!).

Hi there,

I was stopped in the Commons the other day by a NSCDD product design student who is working on a national design competition for new strollers.

He invited me to a focus group at NSCDD next Tuesday, Jan 27. I can't make it, but he asked me to forward the info to other parents who might want to contribute.

It is at 2:30 at the new NSCDD building down by Pier 21.

If you would like to go, email or pm me and I can send you his email address to RSVP. Kids are welcome and they will be having snacks.

Cheers,
Cassie

Hi guys,

Due to sickness and slippery sidewalks, we have agreed to cancel the playgroup today, March 2, 2009.

Hello again, mommies. I've written here a few times over the last few months but have finally arrived into the city for good. We've managed to bring this interesting (!) weather with us, but hopefully it won;t last too long. My ds (3) and I would love to drop-in on the next playdate. Can anyone let me know when that will be? Next week? And also a reminder about the location/times etc. would be aweswome. Thanks! We look forward to playing with some of you soon.

Mondays from 11-1 at Fort Massey United on Tobin street--it's the last door on the side of the church. It's every week unless announced here that it isn't. Charlene or Cassie would be able to tell you if there's one Monday for sure, but I know I'm planning to head out to the one this Monday, so I hope that there is!
